What you'll do
If drinking phenomenal beer and enjoying good company is your thing, then come join us and other travelers on the The Great Auckland Craft Beer Hunt. We’ll take a gentle stroll to a beautiful bar down by the water which rotates it’s local beer taps continuously. We'll point out interesting sights and trivia along the way. We drink new sours, witbiers, ipa’s, apa’s, stouts, lagers, pilsners and a host of others. All are fresh from the breweries and only available in NZ. Then we wander through the city until we get to an historical brewpub which brews on site. Finally it's off to our last location, a lively New Zealand pub on Auckland's oldest bar street. As well as the beer, there’s great local food, some of the tastiest fried chicken and curly fries you are ever likely to eat! It's also a chance to learn about New Zealand, and meet locals and fellow airbnbers. You'll either be with Kate or Dale, sometimes on occasion, when life allows, you’ll get us both. Watch out those evenings! We run five nights a week. We’ve been going strong on Airbnb now for almost a year and have plenty of positive reviews. So please feel welcome to come join us on our Craft Beer Hunt!
I'm a New Zealander born and bred who grew up on the rural east coat of our amazing country. I've been in Auckland for a few years now and recently teamed up with my partner Dale to start taking visitors out to taste our amazing range of craft beers and ciders and show them a bit of the town at the same time. We have loved meeting people from all over the world who have joined us on our Craft Beer Hunt and we have been so thrilled with the positive feedback our experience has been getting. Can’t wait to see more of you down the pub!
Some really tasty fried chicken (or veg/vegan alternatives)
Craft beer tasting paddles. 3-4 beers at each location (3 locations minimum) unless there is a special event!

Where you'll be
The places we visit are all New Zealand owned and the beer and cider we try is locally brewed. The bars, pubs and breweries we visit are all within the city and therefore we don't do too much walking. We taste a diverse range of fresh New Zealand craft beer and cider. Some of it so recent, it's often the first time we have tried it too! Our last venue is in the entertainment district of Auckland. Which means plenty of after-party options!

Up to 10 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Bring some loose change for transport - sometimes we get whiff of a new brew pub on the outskirts. So we will bundle you onto a train or bus so you can experience the new brews!

The walk is a nice laid back walk - no need to worry if you're not a fitness fanatic. Please feel free to tip your guide. We will not be offended!
